2001 Dutch Star Windshield Pleated Curtain Cleaning

We have a 2001 Dutch Star and would like to clean the Pleated Vertical Curtains at the front. Has anyone done this and what did you do? There are many ideas but i would like to know if they work.

Thank you for your reply

Welcome to iRV2 and the vintage Newmar family .

I too have ideas and would like to know if they work.

Thinking about carefully soaking in the bath tub with a light soap solution, but wondering if I'd loose the stiffness of the pleats .

You could pre vacuum, spray them with mineral spirits, brush with horse hair brush and vacuum again. Will not leave water marks or stains behind in the pleats. Small shop vac or hand attachment on stand up household vac will work. Buy a gallon of spirits from hardware store and a hand sprayer. Horse hair brush may be found at janitorial store or online.

I took mine to a dry cleaner - I think it was $20-25 per half. Came back nice, not perfect, but for being 20+ years old at the time, a big improvement.
